We were blessed with glorious sunshine for the 2nd Carlsberg Pro-am held last Friday. The winning team was Revidge & Wilpshire Taxi company and included two members, John Reed and Malcolm Berry.
Andy Duncan from PGA Lancashire remarked upon the many positive comments he received relating to the excellent golf course, the quality of the catering and the superb facilities on offer here at Preston GC. Events like these put us in the shop window of many golfers from around the north, therefore playing a strong part in the promotion of our club and bringing valuable income.
Press Release - Long trip pays off for Bevan
Jon Bevan, a former European Tour player and twice PGA Cup team member, top scored in the PGA in Lancs Preston pro-am with a one-under-par 70. And his success fully justified his journey from Rhos-on-Sea, where he is a teaching professional, to the testing Fulwood course which attracted 19 four-man teams.
Bevan rolled in six birdies, including three in a row from the sixth, which were offset by five bogeys as he won by a shot from in-form Richard Daniels, from Myerscough College and Houghwood's Barry Taylor.
Meanwhile, Mossock Hall's Shacklady heads the Order of Merit by 93 points from Colin Maroney, of Bolton Old Links.
LEADING SCORES: 70 Jon Bevan (Rhos-on-Sea); 71 Richard Daniels (Myerscough College), Barry Taylor (Houghwood); 72 Andrew Pickering (Carus Green); 73 Andrew Baguley (Leigh), Andrew Greenbank (Preston), Steve Parry (Hart Common).
Saturday saw the Edwards trophy played for, with Keith Lee coming out on top with a fantastic score of 61 nett. Well done to the other strong performers of which saw 6 of our pupils in the top ten. Particular mention of Gav Timberlake again who is 0.3 away from reducing his handicap from 8 to 4 this year. Well done guys!
